Ronnie Radke Calls Out Motionless in White for Ripping

Is imitation the sincerest type of flattery? Whether it’s or not, Falling in Reverse’s Ronnie Radke doesn’t seem too thrilled with Motionless in White today, calling out what he feels is the band ripping his group off with their “Werewolf” video, which he feels nicks from Falling in Reverse’s “Popular Monster” clip.

Radke began to make his case on the social media network X (formerly Twitter), initially posting a Motionless in White concert poster for a Halloween show in Philadelphia. The poster noticeably includes a graveyard with a clawed werewolf within the artwork. The Falling in Reverse singer captioned his sharing of the poster, “I’m a preferred popular Biter.”

That opened the door for some rebukes on social media and Radke elaborating on his stance where Motionless in White is worried. When one poster noted, “Yes because no person else could make a metal song about werewolves now that FIR did one. Ronnie, I like your stuff but please,” the singer responded, “Bro it’s the timing, after all people have done this, popular monster I turn right into a werewolf, they went to the video director I exploit Due to my video.”

He continues, “I do know this can be a fact because I used to be told by people who worked on it. they asked to be was a werewolf, video director said, ‘I already did that with ronnie,’ they said they still need to proceed. it’s not about it being doing 30 years ago. It’s in regards to the circumstance, the movie style tour admats it’s all the things. I’m not the primary to do anything but my ideas come from an actual place I’m not hating man it’s just disheartening. I understand coincidences may occur but this ain’t that case. It’s a RIP.”

Radke then continued, “Y’all won’t ever understand, quite a lot of bands feel like this but don’t say it, I just speak up on it. I can ASSURE you. imma bit tactless in my approach and at end of day who cares. but LOL ITS. Fucking rip off hahahaha.”

When the identical poster as before countered, “Bruh imagine being so obsessed. You didn’t do anything ground breaking. How dare they wanna turn right into a werewolf for a song called werewolf. What a fucking loser,” Radke once more reiterated, “Going to same video director after seeing me turn right into a werewolf HAHAHAHAGAHHAHAHAHA.” After one other poster noted, “Okay? They liked how he did your SFX and makeup … so what?,” Radke added, “AND THAT I TURNED INTO A WEREWOLF, that’s the purpose he should’ve transformed right into a the creature of the black lagoon.”

From there, Radke explained a little bit of his annoyance over what he felt was a rip off. “You understand what I feel it’s? I feel it’s the incontrovertible fact that people don’t acknowledge the inspiration, like they see something doing good and take a look at to do it, but pretend like they got it from elsewhere because they don’t want to return off like they’re jacking a current thing. for me I mention my inspirations In My music prefer it’s so obvious I grew up listening to Eminem and loved horror movies and Batman etc. you may hear my Eminem Inspiration in my rapping. And I literally say it in my songs. let’s make 2024 the 12 months we give credit to one another. And stop lying. Bring me the horizon is inspiring. Bad omens is inspiring. Parkway drive is inspiring. architects is inspiring and so forth.”

He then credited Bring Me the Horizon’s Oli Sykes as someone who acknowledged the inspiration but still did something original, stating, “oli Sykes went to the video director I exploit because he was inspired my mine, and guess what he told him ‘I like what you probably did but I don’t need to copy’ he went out of his method to make a video that was his own, I gained a lot respect for oli after I used to be told this, that is what I mean. As a substitute of just ripping he went out of his method to do his own thing. I RESPECT THAT SHIT, same with ice nine kills they do there OWN THING. that is what I mean.”

He continued, “Anyway, this copy cat stuff is so trivial, and at end of day can be forgotten, it’s trivial to get upset at, it needs to be flattering if anything. But sometimes I can’t help to specific myself on these matters. like who cares at end of day.”

That said, Radke added yet one more jab at Motionless in White, sharing similar poster artwork and screenshot grabs and asking fans to distinguish, “Which one is Falling in Reverse, which one is Motionless in White?”
